It's Been Said Before

Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Title: Language and Discipline Perspectives on Academic Discourse
Edited By: Kjersti Fløttum

This book represents the physical outcome of the symposium “Academic Voices
in Contrast”, organised at the University of Bergen, Norway, in May 2006.
The symposium, focusing on recent research within the field of academic
discourse, was initiated and organised by the KIAP project (Cultural
Identity in Academic Prose; see In this project, a
special focus has been put on the study of the voice(s) of the academic
author, in the doubly contrastive perspective of language and discipline.

A narrow selection of distinguished scholars were invited to participate at
the symposium. They were asked to address issues related to “traditional”
linguistic versus contextual approaches or to interlingual and
interdisciplinary similarities and differences in academic discourse. By
the papers of the following, the symposium and the present book constitute
a clear advancement of the research on academic discourse: M. A. A. Ariza,
L. Berge, M. Bondi, S. V. Bonn, S. Carter-Thomas, T. Dahl, K. Fløttum, A.
M. Gjesdal, F. Grossmann, K. Hyland, T. Kinn, L. Lundquist, A. Mauranen, M.
Pabón, E. Rowley-Jolivet, F. Salager-Meyer, P. Shaw, J. M. Swales, J.L.
Tønnesson, E. T. Vold, F. Wirth.
